Each year our junior science students are given seeds to start a vegetable patch. All science students are encouraged to plant a organic vegetables. During the summer months students are visited by Mr Hynes who assesses the students own work. Whether students have planted a few lettuce plants in a window box or a few square meters of cabbage and potatoes each receives a certificate.
There are also awards in a number of categories.
this project is run to show students the benefit of growing your own vegetables and to encourage them to develop their green fingers. It also links in with the science curriculum
